Default Help!!! advice is appreciated! should I forgo my phd and apply for the match, or get my degree, cross the 5 year cutoff and then match?

Hi everyone!

I need your advice pleeeeeaseeeeeeee! I'm currently doing a phd, and I'm planning on doing a residency after it. The problem is, if I stay long enough to get the degree, I will cross over the 5 year cut off. What should I do?? should I let go of my phd, let my work and tuition fees go to waste and apply next year ? or should I stay, get the phd, cross over the 5 year cut off, and then apply for the residency?

Any advice is appreciated, I dont know what to do or what will serve me better Thanks!
